After the heart-shattering ending of her first serious relationship, eighteen-year-old Sophie has sworn off love. Now that school is behind her, she plans to travel the world and form as few attachments as possible. The only exception: Lex, the artist on the other end of the Internet who chats to her almost every day. A guy she can never lose--since she doesn't actually have him to begin with.
Sophie's plan can start as soon as she's faked her way through her sister's wedding. Pretending to be happy and excited for the next week or two should be easy, right? But that was before Caleb walked onto the scene ... Best man to Sophie's almost-brother-in-law, Caleb is infuriatingly friendly and determined to get a real smile out of Sophie. Forced together through dance classes and wedding-related disasters, Sophie is determined not to like him. And terrified when she ends up failing.
Then Lex suggests he and Sophie should meet, and all Sophie's careful plans for the future begin to unravel. Now the girl who was never meant to fall for anyone must figure out what to do with the two guys tugging at her heart.

The Trouble with Falling is a sweet, clean contemporary romance that can be read as a standalone novel.

* I received an ebook in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. * I have read the previous 3 books in this series and I loved them all, however, this one is my absolute favorite!! You don't have to read the previous books to be able to read this one, however, they are amazing, so you should! This could be read as a standalone as the author catches the reader up quickly so that they know what is going on throughout the book. Sophie is the baby of the family and the one who is feeling left out of the wedding festivities for her sister, Sarah, not because she is excluded but because she doesn't believe in happily ever after, or love or guys anymore. She has pretty much decided that she needs no one except herself and her online fellow artist friend Lex. Is it possible to be in love with someone that you have never actually met in person? Is it possible for a relationship to be taken to the next level? Lex asks Sophie to meet in person and that spells trouble for their relationship...enter Caleb, one of her future brother-in-laws best friends and Sophie may find out there are still a few surprises left for her. This is an amazing story and the author grabs the readers attention right from the very start! The reader becomes hooked and can't wait to see what happens next. This is a roller coaster of both emotion and the plot as the author keeps the reader guessing throughout the entire story! Sit back, grab a cozy blanket and be prepared to find your new favorite book of the year!! It's a must read!! Enjoy ~
I LOVED this story so much. And for so many reasons. I think it's my favorite in the Trouble series. And one reason why is because I felt so emotionally connected with Sophie. At first I was worried that her grumpiness/negative attitude was going to be too much for me to handle throughout the book. But then I recognized myself in her grumpy slump and wanted her to find happiness, knowing she could find it if she made some changes. Another reason why I LOVED this story was because of Caleb and Lex. I suspected their identity from the beginning and that made their interactions with Sophie so much fun! The romantic tension in this story made me stay up until 1:00 in the morning needing to know what happened. I especially LOVED the email/Artster interactions between Sophie and Lex even though a creative writing professor once told me to avoid writing important character interactions in emails, texts, or phone calls. BUT, Rochelle Morgan has proven that that idea is totally outdated. Not only are some of my FAVORITE conversations between Lex and Sophie not in person, they are where the reader learns so much about the characters and what they need to do to change or become vulnerable to the other person. Another detail that I loved about this story, and all the Trouble books, is that it's about changing what we can and learning to let go of things we can't change, and learning to accept help from others. There are so many other things I loved about this book. But I'll finish up by saying I loved the kissing in the rain scene. I need to recreate that scene for reals with my hubby. I also LOVED the ending. Caleb is my favorite. There should be more Calebs in the world. Oh, and this story totally made me want to draw and create art the way Sophie and Caleb do. LOVED this story all around. Grateful for the advanced read for an honest review.
